, it is unbelievable that now governor romney talks about immigrants with derogatory terms like "legals," yet he profited from the funding that actually cause much of the immigration to the u.s. from el salvador. >> mitt romney talks about people should self the port. >> i think ross south america, nicaragua, el salvador, honduras, has always been a small elite that has benefited from bain a group basically facilitating the exploitation of their own countries by american businesses. i think that romney was so closely tied to some of the salvadoran compradors that is really astounding in terms of his stance on immigration. and in the film, they have one of the most powerful portions of the film where it is the testimony of one of the salvadoran torture victims who became an immigrant or refugee here in the united states. she talks in vivid terms about the kinds of torture that she went through and somehow managed to survive. i think that romney got his start in bain through his investment by some of these salvadorian elites is really telling in itself. >> i want to get your comment on the current

also offered some remarks. and in a breathless day of nonstop talk and travel, mr. romney has just arrived for a rousing event in ohio where he's desperately hoping to claw his way out of a substantial polling deficit. there are sign mrs. romney may be coming to his senses after joking at the clinton global initiative that he could do with a little help from a former president. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple days for that bounce to happen. >> right, we'll keep our eye on that. the other bump that romney loves to talk about these days is his attack on the president for saying the middle east would face bumps in the road and romney's suggestion that the president was somehow referring to the deaths of the american ambassador to libya and three other diplomats. a theme that romney reiterated today though in a more muted form. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the musl

, but something always sticks. today we got this bit of mitt romney talking about the emergency landing last week of a plane that at the time was carrying his wife, ann romney. >> i appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. i don't think she knows how worried some of us were. when you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go exactly. and you can't find any oxygen from outside the care craft because the windows don't open. it's a real problem. >> it's a real problem that the windows don't roll down on airplanes? is it also a problem that guns don't shoot backwards through the barrel this way? why don't the windows roll down? i don't think he was joking because he couldn't possibly be joking about his wife being in a plane crash. so did he -- has he never seen gold finger? >> right? maybe mr. romney was joking when he said it was a real problem he couldn't get the windows to roll down in airplanes when he was joking about scary involving his wife. you wouldn't think a guy would joke about. maybe he meant only planes flying at low altitudes? we don't know. regardless o

's going on. the romney campaign eager to talk about it in the days to come. >> in fact, this is a phrase that's gotten the president into trouble, has drawn a response from the romney campaign once before in a very different context. he was talking about bumps in the road in the economic recovery, and the romney campaign put together a very memorable ad where they had people standing up from along a road in the middle of nowhere, saying i'm not a bump in the road. >> i mean, this was a good day for mitt romney's campaign. we haven't said that in a long time. if he wins this thing, this could be the beginning of his comeback. he needed to get the focus off the 47% remark. at least for one day i think he did. >> greta: you know, it minimizes things, but it's not sort of like isolated like a gaffe, because you have a situation where he won't meet with the prime minister of israel, won't meet with netanyahu. secretary of state hillary clinton met with the presidents of afghanistan and libya. i realize she has a big portfolio. he doesn't seem fully engaged. >> i think that -- i think that it

, this is an inept campaign, obviously. but i don't know why mr. romney wants to talk about taxes because whenever he talks about taxes it just remind people of his own tax returns that we haven't seen. and lawrence, he paid what, 14%? 14.1% on massive amounts of money that he received. the average ohioan pays 20.1% compared to mitt romney's 14.1%. that fact alone should cause mitt romney to want to stay away fr the discussion of taxes. but i still think that there's something in his tax returns that would be so damaging that he knows that it would be a deal breaker with the american people and that's why we probably will never see his tax returns. but i think that's very telling and i think that, as well as the cayman islands, the swiss bank account, his investments in multiple countries around the world, the fact that he called paul ryan's budget a marvel us budget. this man's got lots of problems and i don't think he can solve them in the next 44 or 43 days. >> thank you all for joining me tonight. >> thanks, lawrence. >>> coming up, another episode of mitt vs mitt. mitt romney contradicted once a
